to apply for the deferred action program announced by the administration, but that program would simply give her a reprieve without the security and certainty that she needs to advance and continue her schooling. that is the path to citizenship that our dreamers need and deserve. so that they can go to school, serve in our military, give back to this country, earn their citizenship through deeds. not just words, but deeds that make us all proud and contribute to the quality of life in our nation. that's what they want to do, is to earn citizenship that so many of us take for granted and that so many people in this country have as a birthright without the effort that she will devote to becoming a united states citizen. we have great citizens born here, who value and prize their citizenship. but solange is one who deserves a path and the ability to earn it through her deeds and her accomplishments in school and afterward. on this human rights day, i thank this body for giving me the honor. it is an extraordinary honor to say how much human rights mean in this country. we are the paragon o

what will happen. we are hoping housing will pull us out of this malaise and we did a little action on that end. >> let's remember housing can only do so much. how they represented about 6.5% of gdp. it is only about two and .5% of gdp right now. although i think it will be a nice positive driver that has been for five or six quarters now, it doesn't have quite the impact it did a few years ago. tracy: were so great, thank you. >> than thank you for having me. tracy: the names most often used with talk about the housing crisis, believe it or not, you know him, fannie mae and freddie mac. making headlines again, so let's gegive you a refresher in two companies. then mae $116 billion from taxpayers. to be fair to pay some of that back. but they still owe nearly 88 early in dollars. freddie mac is not doing much better getting $71 billion going for $9 billion. they owe you and me more than $137 billion. but wait, here is some news. the federal housing finance agency near the 2010 and 30 employees are taking home a paycheck for the median pay is more than $2000. actually won six of the

to re-examine questionable prosecutions. but she defends the actions of the police in these two cases. >> anita alvarez: we have not uncovered any evidence of any misconduct by the police officers or the state's attorneys that took the statements in these cases. >> pitts: alvarez still believes the confession terrill swift gave in the nina glover case, despite the fact there was no d.n.a. evidence linking him or the others to the crime. did you find any of the boys' d.n.a. on the victim? >> alvarez: no, we didn't. >> pitts: did you find any of their d.n.a. in the basement of the house? >> alvarez: no. >> pitts: how do you explain that the boys would say they raped a woman and there not be any d.n.a. evidence? doesn't that strike you as odd? >> alvarez: well, we would love to have d.n.a. on everything and every... and every piece of evidence that we have in every crime. but it doesn't necessarily occur. >> pitts: last year, the innocence project retested the one d.n.a. sample that was recovered inside the victim, nina glover. it was submitted to the national d.n.a. database, and a matc
and the united kingdom is the price of electricity. can the prime minister tell us what action he is taking to keep the electricity costs down in northern ireland? >> we're trying to put people on the lowest tariff which is welcomed across the country. in erm terms of business the government is trying to exempt businesses under the electricity market reform. i think it shows this government is working hard to help those industries and make sure they continue to compete and succeed in britain. >> we want to join the prime minister in congratulating on the duke and duchess of their good news. can you confirm that the commonwealth, at last, agreed to change the rules on royal succession? and will prime minister bring before the house a bill very soon so that if this baby is a girl she can follow in the footsteps of her much-loved great grandmother and become our queen? >> very grateful to my friend for her question. yeah, i think i can answer positively on all of the points she made. i chaired a meeting and we agreed that we should bring forth legislation to deal with this issue. all of the re
everybody over 150,000. you take the president's actions. the president doesn't want to get an agreement or compromise he wants to get his way. he won't come to the table with any serious proposal because we can get a solution everybody can live with. >>> they have a bit of a messaging problem. i don't understand why there's not more of a conversation that starts with the fact these taxes go up. democrats would not extend what has been a republican proposal to keep them low. they are in place now and that's a republican package. if that doesn't happen the democrats taxes are higher. i am not hearing the clarity of that. why not? >> the orchestrated media wants to give you two myths. the president hasn't come from the table with anything. all he does is press conferences. the second thing they wanted to give you the illusion if the tax rates go up on everybody above # 200,000 that solves all of the problems. what i suggest to the speaker and majority leader the past two weeks is i suggested they take a major conference hall to the capital and every morning the speaker the majority leader
by the weekend talks, but to get a deal done on time, apparently action this week is said to be critical. and now we have the president heading out on the road again. president obama leaves d.c. today, headed to michigan to talk to auto workers, part of his strategy to generate public support for his plan to avoid the fiscal cliff, the tax hikes and spending cuts due to kick in at year end. the president and house speaker john boehner met one on one at the white house on sunday. while no details were leaked, a rarity for washington, we do know the main sticking points remain. raising taxes on high earners and making cuts to entitlement programs like medicare. >> you know, they started their tango now, and any time you start a tango, you have to get it done. >> more republicans are accepting the idea that wealthy americans will get a tax raise hike. >> there are a group of folks looking at this realizing we don't have a lot of cards before year end. >> but others remain opposed to raising taxes on the top 2%. >> the president wants the rates to go up. that doesn't solve the problem, and we don't w
border. despite all the action from drones it remains a safe haven in so many ways to our enemy, a big problem. al kuwaiti took over for the man on the screen who was killed in a strike in june. jon: amid word top brass at the state and defense departments as well as senior intelligence officials knew eastern libya was a hub for jihadists for years long before the deadly terror attack september 11th that killed four americans including our ambassador to libya. new questions now about the level of the security at the u.s. consulate and why our people were put in harm's way in the first place. joining us now, senator john barrasso, republican from wyoming. chairman of the republican policy committee and sifrs on the foreign relations committee. you received a letter from john kerry, the committee chairman, saying that hillary clinton, the secretary of state is expected to testify before the end of the term. how critical is her testimony, senator? >> well i think it is very important to have hearings with hillary and they need to be in my opinion open and on the record. there are so many
. there are talking about the same basic issues. host: one of the shore signs of action in washington, we have heard there is a possibility that they could come back after christmas. guest: i have been telling clients since september we were going over the cliff. i was not sure there was a sign it or coming back before christmas. this last-minute deal of some time, it could easily be approved -- the house and senate do not need to be here for this because it will not be the big, big deal. this is not the grand compromise they are talking about here there is not enough support to do the technical things. this could be a simple package they do at the last minute. host: even if the white house and john boehner agree to a deal, congress may not pass it. guest: that is my biggest concern. it is possible the speaker and the president could reach a deal, there is a significant portion of the republican party that would rather go over the fiscal cliff and have a deal. host: this is a very important change. a lot of people say, 1995 and 1996, the speaker and president clinton were able to cut a deal addicted
to decline and less money for political action and there's a cynical political motive and i just want to put this all in perspective. if we could put the chart back up that was just on the screen. as union membership declined in this country, right along with it, middle class share of the income has declined. and i know the story is not that simple. but the decline of labor in this country has been a very important piece of the story of the decline of the middle class and rising inequality in the country. paul krugman has an article talking about profits as a share of national economy surging while the share of national income going to labor through wages and other composition is declining so union rights major major part of that story. >> nomenclature issue is important here. typical republican naming of things. right to work please. this is the right to not join the union that made the workplace better. when you join a workplace, the union made improvements to the situation you may not even realize or notice at that point. they'll protect you in the future from things you don't know are fo
, president of the american action form. pretend you're. >> thanks. lou: fighting words in washington. the speaker today actually said these words. the president has adopted a deliberate strategy to a slow walk our economy right to the edge of the fiscal cliff. are you emotionally moved? do you think the nation is galvanized? >> i don't knowifhe nation is galvanized in the but i will be honest to my nervous about this. i view the clippers a genuine economic threat and a recipe for recession. we heard the secretary of treasury said earlier this week that he was prepared to go over the cliff, which i found shocking as the top economic official in an administration. if that is the strategy,it is a very, very dangerous one. lou: it is clear, the speaker made a clear, he believes that is precisely what the president wants to do and will do. as you say, it is stunning to watch the principal economic financial figures in the obama administration be leading a political negotiation rather than, if you will, minding over an economy filled with 23 million people unemployed all sorts of challenge
at the president as actions. the president doesn't want an agreement or compromise, he wants to get his way and that's why he won't come to the table with any serious proposal and talk, because we could get a solution that everybody could live with. >> it seems that there's a messaging problem. i don't understand why there's not a conversation if the taxes go up, the democrats would extend a republican proposal could keep it low. low taxes are in place and that's a republican package. if that doesn't happen, the democrats package with higher taxes is going up. i'm he not hearing the clarity. >> the orchestrated media give you two myths and act like the president has been negotiating, he hasn't come to the table with anything. all he does is press conferences. they want the illusion if the tax rates go up on everybody above 200,000 somehow that solves the problems. that's a minor point. what i stugd uggested to the speaker and the minority leader, take a conference call in the capitol and every morning, speaker, majority leader, the whip and our leadership team sit down at the table and say
, because otherwise we will have al qaeda an-- >> i don't disagree. there will be international action taken, no question about it. >> on this one we cannot lead from behind. we will have to lead from a head. >> i want to talk about 2016. that's right, 2016. >> i am still convinced that the overwhelming majority of our people want what my parents had, a chance. >> that is senator marco rubio of florida, one of the leading contenders, among the chattering classes yway, for the 2016 republican presi na, onth ryan. among e democtsa lot of talk about hillary clinton. is rubio trying to redefine the republican party, colby? ->> he is trying to put distance between himself and what their standard bearer did with the 47% in being the plutocrat and showing he was completely in balti have any -- completely unable to have any impact on people different from himself because he cannot understand them. they are trying to show is another side to it it is early, and the answer will not be charisma or rhetoric. it is policies. anything in their favor that suggest there will pursue policies substantially dif
the current budget, i can move to the action items that are before you. i have put it up on the overhead. there are about four questions there. there is a committee support drafting 13-14 and 14-15 in your budget a approved in june 2012 as a baseline to start from. budget analyst the committee can authorize me to bring it in-house or to rfp the services. contemplate the third a position and annualizing the salary and fringe for those positions and the youth commission, third position. so, perhaps i can jump right into it. >> in terms of the budget analyst services, in terms of that one, can you tell me a little bit about what it would take? * this is a question that has been asked time and time again about whether or not we can actually bring this in-house or not. i think there is a fair amount of members on the board who are interested in exploring that idea. in terms of the logistics of it, would we be able to do that immediately in time for this budget? can you help us walk through that? what would be sort of your recommendation? would it be to go through an rfp process first and then
leadership and this resolution and the actions that it directs is an important first step in establishing that for the city and county of san francisco. so thank you.
. >> shannon sharpe, brent's actions changed the lives of two people forever. >> jerry brown, his family will never be able to talk to him and see the young man again. he's probably cost himself an nfl career and some time in the penitentiary. >> in 2009, he pleaded guilty to dui. one former coach says the nfl needs stronger punishments to deter drunk driving. >> only hammer you have is playing time. there should ab automatic two game suspension in the first dui. >> if convicted, he faces a minimum of two years behind bars. >> brent's attorney claims the client's bond is excessively high and is working to get it reduced. >>> sad news as the entertainment world, janet riviera is believed dead after a learjet carrying her and seven other guests crashed in new mexico. she was born and raised in long beach. she recently divorced from major league pitcher. >>> a murder in broad daylight has some oakland businesses concerned. a man was killed just before saturday afternoon near jackland and square. favorite spot for tourists. witnesses claimed, he fired a federal shot and flet the area of the
questions, what is the top 10 actions that research universities, the federal government, and others can take to ensure that the research university can maintain the research needed to help the united states compete and achieve goals for vuremal and security in the 21st century. they are a working group of the national academy and they produce products that shape policies. that question posed by congress is pretty complicated and the n.r.c. leaders needed to put together a panel that represents a broadband of leaders, people from government, the academy, and the national laboratories. i had a privilege on being a member of that panel. congress asked for 10 actions we structured our report around 10 recommendation with a time frame in the next five to 10 years. one of those recommendations focused on policies of the flow of skull laars and students to the united states. more and more students are applying to come to our research universities. u.v.a. has had a 53% in the last three years alone. the u.s. benefits with talented students come to study and conduct research and we benefit if t

of the departments, to identify the signs of domestic violence and to have action plans. and we are looking at other cities and how they have workplace domestic violence policies and there is a budget analyst report that we will be analyzing soon but i am proud to have you on as co-sponsors because i know of the great work that both supervisor avalos and you. and what you have brought up especially on race and class differences in the movement and my goal is having a stronger movement but i always respect the autonomy of organizations that bring the resolutions and ordinances to us and i hope that you understand what i am saying about that. >> i believe that a lot of these organizations came to you with an outside political agenda. and i believe that if i hope that in the future, rather than bullying people and basically sort of marginalizing and the voices of two latino women, me and lopez to a large degree, that we were actually approached by the domestic violence community, and engaged in some kind of healthy dialogue around rather than bullying and being marginalized by that very community that
action and improvisation as we figure out the best way to get along. both depend on a group allowing a soloist or representative to step forward and recite his piece while the rest of the group provides background harm any and rhythm. when both forms work, the world is treated to a remarkable result. where ad hoc and seemingly dissonent voices become a part. we know the amazing things chris achieved when he led the way as america collaborated with the libyan people and our allies to move forward toward greater freedom and representative form of government. the middle east and especially libya was chris's bandstand. he knew the members gained through collaboration and personal approach. i want to share one last memory. our daughter maggie was born in 1994 with profound life threatening problems and required many surgeries and long hospitalizations during the first few years. "the chronicle" ran a story in 1996. chris's momma -- mom mary cut out that and sent it to cairo. chris took his time to write a thoughtful note expressing his concern and wishing us well, commenting on how cute
